Lets talk about the War Doctor’s Age hm?

booooomstrawberries:

So we see in the Night of the Doctor, Paul McGann’s 8th Doctor (blessums) regenerates into the War Doctor. Now the only real glimpse we get of his face is a bit of a reflection-

Now I’ve heard of dudes getting baby face when they shave but damn! This is obviously a much younger version of John Hurt, most likely taken from his early days as an actor. (Oh Adobe After Effects…) This is of course how we come to know him in “The Day of the Doctor”-

Ah, good ol’ Granddad. So he lived a long life right? But just how long?

This is Matt Smith in season 5 (supposedly 907 years old)-

Little Boy Eleven. So cute. Gonna just stare for a moment… ahem…

So here is Matt in “Day of the Doctor” (approx. 1200 years old)-

He’s maybe grown into his face a little. But if this is all give or take 293 years of living ages the man, JUST HOW OLD IS THE WAR DOCTOR?

He’s shown an awful lot of age. The Time War was said to have gone on very long. Has war been that hard on him? Has it alone aged him? Perhaps it was the stress of being born as the “War Doctor.” The expectation thrust upon him to fix the Time War mixed with the stress of knowing all along what it would cost?

The War Doctor is possibly one of the saddest Doctors ever. At least he regenerated before he forgot his contribution.

Hello Do you plan to put all versions of Target Doctor Who Book Covers on this page?

I can so whichever ones you would like. I just try and space them out since there is only a finite number. Any one in particular?

"The Curse of Peladon" by Brian Hayles
A wonderful episode and if memory serves correct, the first Third Doctor story to take place on a planet other than earth.

I love Ian Burgess' cover of The Wheel in Space. It's a great cover showcasing one of my favorite looks of the Cybermen. Awesome blog. Thanks!

Glad you like it! I really love that cover too! I keep eying the book on ebay, but I don’t know if I want to shell out the money. Hmmm… decisions decisions…

This infamous and controversial Peter Davison episode needed a terrifying and plodding song to accompany it’s procession of evil Daleks! This episode is also the last appearance of our beloved brave heart Tegan!
